If he could somehow turn back the clock, Al Paskall wouldn’t hesitate. He would return to the night of Dec. 29, 2013, and instead of his wife, he would be the one to go pick up his son from hockey. Paskall was at Surrey Provincial Court Tuesday to attend the first day of a preliminary hearing for Yosef Jomo Gopaul, who’s accused of killing his wife, Julie.

“Somebody has to be here for her,” Paskall said during a break in the proceedings. “I wasn’t there when I should have been there, so I think that it’s paramount that I should be here now.” Julie Paskall drove to Newton Arena, near 71 Avenue and 136B Street, on Dec. 29, and was walking to get her son when she was attacked. She was taken to hospital, where she died two days later, on Dec. 31, 2013. She was 53. “I still blame myself a lot for the death,” the husband

shares. “I could have been there easily, picking my son up instead of her. “I wish I could take her place.” Evidence from the preliminary inquiry is subject to a publication ban and cannot be reported. Preliminary hearings are held to determine if there is enough evidence to justify a trial. Most of Tuesday’s testimony came from the forensic pathologist who performed the autopsy. i see page 4

Lifelong ban prohibits Emma Paulsen from operating an animal-care business

Six-month jail sentence for dog walker Applause erupted in a Surrey courtroom Wednesday, as former dog walker Emma Paulsen was sentenced to six months in jail, handcuffed and led into custody by sheriffs. Paulsen, who lives in Ladner, pleaded guilty in November to animal cruelty and public mischief for the deaths of six dogs in her care and lying to police about it last May. Her sentencing was held in Surrey Provincial

Court, with Judge James Jardine also sentencing her to two years probation, banning her from owning pets for 10 years and prohibiting her from operating an animal-care business for life. Jardine said that while Paulsen may not have intended to kill the dogs, her conduct after the incident constituted “continued, repeated recklessness.” Paulsen, who was a professional dog walker

for several years, sparked widespread media coverage, public grief and desperate searches after she initially reported that six dogs were stolen from the back of her truck, which she claimed was parked at a park in Langley. Five days later, she admitted the canines died in the back of her warm, canopied truck while she was shopping in Richmond. – Sheila Reynolds

An exemption request by the White Rock Farmers’ Market to continue to set up for the event before 8 a.m. was partially backed by city staff but ultimately shot down by elected officials this week. According to market president Sandy VanDeKinder, a 7 a.m. start time for the upcoming summer market – set to open May 24 – is essential for vendors to set up in Miramar Village Plaza prior to customers coming in at 8:30 a.m. “The main reason is safety for us. It’s almost logistically impossible to get 80 vendors on that site and get their vehicles off in an hour, which is what would have to happen if we weren’t given that exemption,” VanDeKinder explained during a delegation at Monday evening’s council meeting. She noted that in all the years the market has been running, the organization had yet to receive any noise complaints. After inquiries were made by council about changing the logistics of the market – including moving a portion of it away from Russell Avenue – VanDeKinder expressed frustration as to why there was an issue to continue to grant the exemption. i see page 4

the leaders in the successful campaign to get rid of the HST. Surrey business groups and Surrey council are backing the “yes” vote. Delta council is seeking input from residents before taking a position. White Rock council wants more information from TransLink. The provincial government has set the tolling policy for the Port Mann. It needs to collect so much each year to pay off the project by 2050. The project, incidentally, includes a large number of freeway improvements north of the Port Mann, which most users pay nothing towards. The province has also said that a new crossing to replace the tunnel will be tolled. TransLink’s plan for the Pattullo Bridge also calls for tolls. If all those come about with no change in tolling policy, four of five crossings from the South Fraser area will be tolled – and there will be no tolls anywhere else in B.C. The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is one of the few business groups to oppose the TransLink congestionimprovement tax. It believes that mobility pricing makes more sense. If there was such a system, all those who use the improved Highway 1 would help pay for it – not just those who must cross the bridge. The province needs to do a major review of its tolling policy, because drivers are asking for some fairness. Frank Bucholtz writes Thursdays for the Peace Arch News.

Budget surplus allows hospitals to make dent in wait list

Fraser Health increases surgeries, MRIs Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fraser Health is temporarily increasing the number of surgeries it will perform over the next two months by seven per cent and it’s boosting the number of MRI scans by four per cent. The additional 650 surgeries and 1,500 MRI scans are to be performed in February and March in a bid to reduce wait lists. A year-end increase in spending to step up surgeries and scans was made possible because of a surplus in the surgical program budget, said Dr. Peter Blair, Fraser Health’s medical director for surgery. “These cases are going to be done over the remainder of this fiscal year and out of our

current budget, so we’re not taking money out of some other activity in order to fund this,” he said. “We’ll be looking at the longerwaiting cases first and bringing them down.” Extra surgeries will be distributed over various hospitals but not likely every one. “We’re looking at Burnaby as a site and we’ll be looking at Surrey, Langley and Eagle Ridge,” he said, listing likely hospitals that may get extra funding. The bump may well be temporary – there’s no guarantee the rate of surgeries and scans won’t drop back down in April as Fraser enters a new budget year. Future levels will depend on Fraser’s budget allocation and the length of its wait lists, officials say.

The move comes after criticism last fall of Fraser for ordering surgeons to reassess some patients in an attempt to avoid or reduce government-imposed fines for failing to complete surgeries within one year. As of Oct. 9, leaked statistics showed 650 scheduled surgeries had waited more than a year, the threshold where the health ministry imposes financial penalties under its payfor-performance system. Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma said those numbers have been steadily improving over the last several months. The proportion of surgeries waiting longer than a year had dropped to 2.8 per cent as of the end of December, she said, down from more than 10 per cent in September 2013.

She credited the combined efforts of surgeons and hospitals for the reduction. Several hospitals with extra operating-room time were able to offer it to surgeons normally based at different hospitals, she said. Each surgery that waits longer than a year means Fraser is docked $1,400 in additional funding it could have otherwise accessed. Juma said the planned increase in surgeries now is unconnected to the potential for penalties. Fraser won’t find out how much funding is withheld due to excessive waits until after the 2014-15 fiscal year is finished. Blair wasn’t able to comment on current wait times for surgeries or scans. He said Fraser may need to juggle nursing shifts and add anesthesiology time to step up surgeries.

‘No value’ to city

Council plans to end question period Sarah Massah Staff Reporter

Question period may be a thing of the past at White Rock council meetings. Elected officials will vote next month on a bylaw amendment to remove question period. The city’s governance and legislation committee voted unanimously on Monday to bring forward the discussion to remove the item from the agenda, saying the question period was of “no value” to the public and council. During question period, residents are able to publicly question councillors and the mayor at the end of each council meeting. “Having gone through one term now and seeing it in operation, it really is a non-event. There are three people, no more than that, who have ever made use of it,” Mayor Wayne Baldwin said. “Consequently, this does not seem to be of any value.” Baldwin noted that anyone who wishes to ask council questions is able to meet after the meetings, appear as a delegation and send emails or letters. “There is plenty of opportunities for the public to engage in council, so to have a question period that is really ineffective, it doesn’t seem to be doing much,” he said. Couns. Megan Knight and Lynne Sinclair agreed, with Knight noting that elected officials from other B.C. communities had told her, during a recent seminar she attended, that they have also dispensed with a question period. Sinclair added that the question period “serves no purpose”: “In today’s world, there are so many ways to get your questions answered – and answered in a much more concise fashion – than at the end of a long council meeting.”

Conflicting versions of what happened a year ago – when an undercover police officer shot at a taxi with three occupants – are being heard.

Statement of defence puts blame on cab driver

Officer ‘shot taxi after being struck’ Tracy Holmes Staff Reporter

A police officer who opened fire on a taxi in White Rock one year ago today (Thursday) essentially acted in self-defence, according to court documents. The response to taxi driver Rashid Ahmad’s civil claim – originally filed in B.C. Supreme Court last July against the RCMP (attorney general of Canada), the attorney general of B.C. and two unnamed White Rock RCMP constables (John Doe and Jane Doe) – was filed on Jan. 5. While Ahmad had alleged the incident – which occurred around noon on Jan. 29, 2014, near the Peace Arch Hospital in the 1500-block of Finlay Street – was the result of negligence on the part of the two officers, the defendants say the officer who fired did so after being struck by the taxi. The impact occurred after the officer stopped his vehicle in front of the taxi, “pressed the button to activate emergency lights on his vehicle, exited, drew his firearm, walked in front of the taxi and shouted “Stop, police! Stop, police!” The response notes the officer was trying to

stop the taxi in order to arrest its passengers, who had been picked up from a home that had been under surveillance as part of a special investigation into drug trafficking. Ahmad said at the time that he was en route to the CIBC at Semiahmoo Shopping Centre with two passengers – one of them an elderly woman – when he was cut off by an unmarked car. A shabbily dressed man got out of the car, drew a gun on the taxi and fired, he said. The response, however, claims Ahmad “did not stop the taxi and instead accelerated and struck the RCMP officer, who fell onto the hood of the taxi cab.” “The plaintiff continued to drive northbound on Finlay Street with the RCMP officer on the hood, and at that point, the RCMP officer who was on the hood of the taxi discharged his firearm. The plaintiff then stopped the taxi cab and the RCMP officer fell off of the vehicle. “The plaintiff was then taken out of the taxi cab, put to the ground and handcuffed.” The driver was released moments later. Ahmad described injuries including a laceration to his left cheek, left temple pain with

numbness, left elbow and rib-cage pain, and a bleeding nose and mouth. He is seeking costs of past and future health care, general damages, past/future loss of income and special damages. The defendants’ response suggests if injuries were suffered, negligence on Ahmad’s part – including failing to follow the instructions of a peace officer and assaulting a peace officer – played a role. The officers involved were “at all times acting within the performance of their duties as peace officers and as members of the RCMP… and in the exercise of their powers as provincial constables,” the response states. An independent investigation into the incident by Coquitlam RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit – the results of which were shared with Peace Arch News last month – did not recommend charges against any of the parties involved. Ahmad’s lawyer, Deepak Gautam, said Tuesday that he is preparing to ask the court to order that he be given a copy of that file. No court date has yet been set to hear the case, Gautam said.

Accused has yet to enter a plea i from page 1 “It’s stuff you don’t want to hear,” Al Paskall told Black Press, adding he urged his children not to attend the court proceedings for now. “I’m having a hard enough time keeping it straight in there…” The couple met in high school.

Theft caught on surveillance footage

Police seek alcohol thief

Surveillance image

Suspect caught on camera.

Officers investigating a recent theft are hoping someone can help them identify a man caught on surveillance footage running out of a White Rock store with three bottles of liquor. The image from the Jan. 8 incident shows a middle-aged man in a dark-coloured baseball cap, wearing a white T-shirt and a dark-coloured, zippered hoodie. He spent only a short amount of time in the store – located in the 15100-block of North Bluff Road – before fleeing to a vehicle that was waiting outside.

White Rock police released the image and details Monday (Jan. 26), citing the delay in receiving the video, as well as other higherpriority incidents that arose in the meantime, as factors that postponed the public appeal. The alleged thief is described as a six-foot-four Caucasian, 50-55 years old with a medium build. Anyone who can identify the man is asked to contact the RCMP detachment at 778-5933600, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. – Tracy Holmes

City among seven ‘intelligent communities’

Surrey on ‘smart city’ shortlist Surrey is one of the top seven ‘intelligent communities’ in the world – according to a New Yorkbased think tank. The Intelligent Community Forum evaluates communities on their ability to plan for the future using new technology, while still respecting their unique cultural identities. The city made the organization’s 2015 list – released online Jan. 22 – along with U.S. communities Arlington County, Va., Columbus, Ohio, and Mitchell, S.D., and

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Ipswich in Australia; and New Taipei City, Taiwan. It was announced in October that Surrey was one of 21 semifinalists selected from more than 300 nominations. In June, the Intelligent Community of the Year will be named at a ceremony in New York City. Surrey, receiving its first recognition from the ICF, was cited for a “diversification strategy deepening the partnership between its institutions of higher learning and

local business” as a means of transitioning from a suburban past to a “sustainable urban future.” Singled out for praise was the city’s Innovation Boulevard project, for bringing together health technology, clean-tech and advanced manufacturing under the oversight of representatives from government, developers, universities, Fraser Health, nonprofit organizations and business associations.

Not time to borrow more

T

he move to lower the Bank of Canada’s key lending rate by 0.25 per cent last week caught most observers and analysts by surprise. While the main reason for the surprise drop is economic uncertainty caused by the sharp fall in the price of oil, it will have many ripple effects. The move means that interest rates will be lower for almost all loans. While that can be a very good thing for people with variable rate mortgages, lines of credit or about to renew their mortgages, it also may encourage some people to take on more debt. For most Canadians, and particularly for younger people who own their own homes in this part of B.C., that can be a very bad move. The Metro Vancouver area has the second most unaffordable housing in the world, based on household income. The only place that is even more unaffordable is Hong Kong. However, Hong Kong has some good reasons to be so unaffordable. It is situated on a very small piece of land, and while officially part of China, it operates with very different economic and legal systems. It is a hub for business in Asia and is definitely a worldclass city. Vancouver, on the other hand, is situated in a beautiful geographical area but its economy is nothing like Hong Kong’s. While some aspects of the Metro Vancouver economy – like port activity and software development – are quite robust, other areas of the economy are struggling. This has led to a virtual freeze on many people’s wages in the past six years, yet housing prices have continued to rise, due at least in part to offshore investors parking their money in what they perceive as a safe environment. The ripple effect of this activity has driven many people farther and farther from their jobs, as they attempt to find something they can afford. The result of all this is that younger first-time buyers have taken on enormous amounts of debt to service their mortgages. Because of this borrowing, they often have taken out other loans to meet other expenses, such as auto loans or payday loans. The average Canadian debt level is over 160 per cent, meaning that people owe over $1.60 for every dollar that they make. Lower interest rates will likely be beneficial to the larger Canadian economy, but people who already have high levels of debt should take advantage of them primarily to pay off their debts more quickly – not to borrow even more money.

seeking public attention and support. And into this heartfelt melee comes the Internet and crowdfunding – representing a light-year leap from local, regional or even global appeals by major agencies such as Red Cross, to any single project or cause that can tap into the worldwide online audience. There is no question that a tremendous amount of good is being done via online fundraising. Kids are getting medical help. Families are helped through the trauma and loss caused by fires and other catastrophes. Young people get a boost in their post-secondary education endeavours. Locally, several campaigns are seeing success, including a wildlife rehabilitation centre that has generated thousands to help injured creatures. The variety of online donating opportunities is utterly vast. And they are all dipping into a pool of available cash – albeit made fantastically larger and more complex by the global digital diaspora. The crowdfunding phenomenon is heavily fuelled by social media, an environment in which there are few rules, and the ones that do exist can change tomorrow. And in among all those laudable causes and campaigns and appeals for cash are quirky investment projects, such as a card game featuring exploding kittens, that can go viral in hours, generating millions of dollars for a few guys who are probably right now looking at their computer screens, watching something unfold beyond their wildest dreams. And ours. Andrew Holota is the editor of the Abbotsford News.

Motivated to vote Editor: I will be voting ‘no’ on the Metro Vancouver Congestion Improvement Tax referendum and encourage everyone to take the same position. It is not because it is an unworthy cause. It is certainly worthy. Yet so are many other causes. Education, health care, policing, homelessness, poverty, child abuse and aging infrastructure all come to mind. Is the concept of specific taxes for specific causes the direction we are going? Will the popularity or visibility of a cause determine its success? Will the general revenue fund be available for whimsy once the funding pressures are provided by specific tax measures? We elect leaders with the expectation that they will lead. They are to carefully consider the issues, make the difficult decisions and stand by the reasoning behind those decisions. They hire competent professionals to advise them. At least that is the way I thought the system was supposed to work. This referendum I oppose based on the abdication of leadership and the direction of creating specific taxes for specific purposes. Allan Alton. Surrey Q “You can’t get there from here” will be a common cry from underserved commuters in Langley if the upcoming referendum fails. My family found having two cars a financial burden. I decided that, as I work in Cloverdale, riding the bus would be an affordable alternative. The people I see on the bus need reliable transit to get to work. It would be difficult for most small businesses to rely on a workforce that could not afford to get to work. Eldery and disabled people have been devastated by a HandyDart funding freeze. Without adequate funding, HandyDart riders will be robbed of their health and quality of life. My 91- and 92-year-old mother and father rely on HandyDart. If people vote ‘no’, they may be expressing their anger at TransLink mismanagement. Anger should be expressed at those truly responsible for debacles past and present. The provincial government dumped the responsibility of building mega bridges on TransLink. The provincial government created a sham of governance by removing mayors and appointing corporate shills to the TransLink board. The provincial government pours money into LNG development despite all advice to the contrary. The provincial government robs working people of the democratic right to resist power giveaways with the Site C Dam. TransLink’s strings are controlled by a cruel puppet master. A vote in favour of transit funding is a vote to provide working people, a growing aging population and disabled people dignity. The real vote against ineptitude is a vote against the Liberal government in the next election. Mark Beeching, Langley

Q In the upcoming referendum on transit, I may vote ‘no’ – not because I don’t want another tax increase to finance improvements, but because I don’t like what is proposed for Surrey. Surrey is growing rapidly, and increasing traffic congestion is not the way to go. I believe the proposed light rail plan will do just that. Adding two tracks on 104 Avenue – Fraser Highway to Langley and along King George to 72 Avenue – will not improve congestion. Fraser Highway was recently widened to four lanes to Langley, but eliminating two of those lanes for tracks will only add to congestion. And the same could be said for 104 Avenue and King George Boulevard. Can you imagine travelling down either one of these streets with only one lane in each direction? Also, light rail is not compatible with SkyTrain.

SkyTrain has its maintenance yard in Burnaby, which light rail will not be able to access. That means there will have to be a maintenance facility and storage yard built somewhere in Surrey or perhaps Langley to accommodate light-rail cars. I’ve had a look at the proposed ballot for the referendum and, if it is presented as shown, it could be misleading for the citizens of Surrey. One final point: The proposed light rail along 104 Avenue and King George is planned for sometime in the next seven years and the Fraser Highway line is planned for sometime in the next 12 years. So-called rapid transit for Surrey will not happen overnight. Unless the proposed system of light rail for Surrey and Langley is upgraded to include SkyTrain extensions, I’m considering voting ‘no’ in the referendum. Keith Wilson, Surrey

Editor: I’ve lost count of the number of times I ahave almost been hit by a speeding car on Crescent Road. The speed limit in this area drops from 50 km/h to 30, but most drivers don’t even slow down to 80. They come flying around the corner – often in the cycling lane, shocking those who are trying to cross, and being startled by the sudden appearance of a pedestrian. Several years ago, Surrey council held a meeting in Elgin to get feedback regarding establishing a crosswalk, but we are still waiting. There still isn’t a crosswalk in the more than 16 blocks between King George Boulevard and 128 Street. Jerry Steinberg, Surrey

Canada’s place in the world has evolved in the years since it was seen as a friendly country, writes Larry Colero.

No longer a peace-loving nation Editor: Re: Educate in order to eradicate terrorism, Jan. 15 editorial. Canadian media report on the daily details of terrorism, making us more fearful, which is what the terrorists want. The only way to reduce the threat of terrorism is to understand the why of it, so we can address the root causes. For example, why does a terrorist risk or even sacrifice their life? Why has Canada become a new target? Asking “what motivates a terrorist?” can in no way justify the violence. Understanding a killer’s motive doesn’t condone the murder. We just need to get inside their muddled heads so we can turn them around. Are they driven by religious fanaticism or mental instability, like the two Canadian cases last fall? Or, are they desperately trying to defend their homeland or way of life, when traditional warfare isn’t an option? Are they perhaps seeking justice for innocent friends and family unintentionally killed by a Canadian bomb? Let’s not forget that the bombs currently dropping from our planes kill more civilians than combatants. Wouldn’t most rational human beings want to defend or retaliate against a country slaughtering their fellow citizens? The more bombs we drop, the more people will hate us. If, as stated in your editorial, Canadians “want to get back to the peace and order that usually characterizes Canada,” we need to accept the fact that Canada has lost its reputation as a peace-loving nation. Since at least the time of Lester Pearson, the world saw Canada as a kind and friendly nation. Americans would

sew our flag on their luggage. Not any more. We are no longer a neutral country trusted to peaceably intervene in co-operation with other countries under the United Nations. Now, under NATO, we’ve become an invader of sovereign nations like Haiti, Libya, Syria and – our longest-running war – Afghanistan. All with highly questionable results, and in countries that never posed a threat to Canada. Let’s stop escalating international conflicts by participating in wars that are none of our business. Yes, the world is a crazy place and people are slaughtering each other. Does adding to the slaughter help? After successive governments had the good sense to decline an active role in the two Iraq wars, suddenly we are neck-deep in that quagmire, as well. Why was Prime Minister Stephen Harper so eager to kick the hornet’s nest? It’s like Canada saying to ISIS, “bring it on!” We have wholeheartedly joined the never-ending War on Terror, which has only served to create more terrorists. Regardless of what justification we might find for our new militarized foreign policy, Canada is now perceived by many nations as a belligerent aggressor. If we’re serious about combating terrorism, we need to reverse direction and stop the war mongering. Let’s return to the Canada we once knew. The War on Terror can only be fought by promoting mutual understanding, tolerance and diplomacy. If we returned to a peace-making Canada, perhaps we could afford to restore support for our veterans instead of declaring war on them, as well. Larry Colero, White Rock

Lisa Batstone to appear Feb. 16

Court date set for mother A South Surrey woman accused of killing her eightyear-old daughter last month made a brief video appearance in Surrey Provincial Court Monday. Lisa Deanne Batstone, 41, spoke twice – once to confirm her identity and then to confirm that she understood her next court appearance had been set for Feb. 16. Her lawyer, Craig Sicotte, asked for the adjournment noting he is still waiting for “a large batch” of

disclosures regarding the matter from the Crown. Batstone was arrested Dec. 10 and charged with second-degree murder after her daughter, Teagan – who had been attending Grade 3 at Rosemary Heights Elementary – was found deceased in the back of a car in a cul-de-sac just south of Crescent Road. The cause of death has not been disclosed. Jan. 5, the court heard that Batstone had been found fit to stand trial. – Tracy Holmes

Province scales back forecast, insists tolls will pay off debt on time

Port Mann use declined Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fewer vehicles crossed the tolled Port Mann Bridge in 2014 than the previous year, but provincial government officials say the decline was expected and appears to have been temporary. The decrease in total traffic was 3.9 per cent, with 34.7 million crossings in 2014 compared to 36.1 million in 2013. Most bridge users enjoyed halfprice tolls throughout 2013 due to an introductory discount offer that ended Jan. 1 2014 when full $3 tolls kicked in. Officials at the Transportation Investment Corp, which manages the new bridge, said they fully expected a dip in use in early 2014 as discounts ended and motorists tried free alternatives, such as the Pattullo Bridge. They also predicted drivers would eventually come back to the Port Mann for its time savings and say the latest counts now show that’s happening, albeit later than expected. December traffic over the bridge was up 2.6 per cent from the same month in 2013 and TI Corp. spokesman Greg Johnson said January traffic is up nearly five per cent.

File photo

Fewer vehicles crossed the Port Mann last year than in 2013. “Traffic on the bridge is now stable and growing,” he said. But the Crown corporation has downgraded its traffic-growth forecast for the years ahead, now estimating it at 2.5 per cent per year. Johnston said an earlier growth forecast prepared before the recession of 2008-09 was much too ambitious. The TI Corp.’s current service plan, filed with the government before the declines of 2014, shows it assumed revenue growth of nearly 10 per cent in both 2015 and 2016. Even with that revenue estimate, Port Mann/Highway 1 debt was expected to rise to more than $3.6 billion by 2014 from an initial construction cost of $3.3 billion. Johnston said the more conser-

vative traffic-growth expectations are now forcing TI Corp. to borrow more money than expected to fund operations over the next few years to offset lower revenue. He said the updated forecast still indicates TI Corp. will fully pay off the Port Mann/Highway 1 project debt by 2050, as planned, with no taxpayer subsidies. TransLink’s tolled Golden Ears Bridge has also struggled to attract as many drivers as originally predicted. But the Golden Ears had an improved 2014, with traffic volume up six per cent. NDP transportation critic Claire Trevena said she has serious doubts as to whether the the bridge can be paid off on time without raising tolls by more than the annual rate of inflation, which she said would drive even more motorists away. “The government has created a real albatross for everybody in B.C.,” she said. New Westminster Mayor Jonathan Coté said too many motorists who don’t want to pay the Port Mann toll drive through his city. His proposed solution is to reduce the toll at the Port Mann and charge the same, lower amount at the Pattullo Bridge.

ore than 40 homeless animals got a boost with free surgery on Sunday, courtesy of two Lower Mainland veterinary clinics. On Jan. 25, during Vets in Action Day, staff and volunteers at Surrey’s Kennedy Heights Animal and Bird Hospital and Burnaby Veterinary Hospital closed their doors to regular patients and performed, at their own time and expense, surgery on 40 furry patients. The dogs and cats, in the care of local shelters and waiting for adoption, were spayed, neutered and had dental work and other minor procedures. “Vets in Action Day started with the idea of creating a day when the businesses and people in the veterinary industry could give back to their local communities,” said Burnaby veterinarian Dr. Claudia Richter, who ran the program starting last year. The animals were brought to the clinics from

both the SPCA and other animal shelters in the Lower Mainland. Last year, Vets in Action performed 25 surgeries, at no cost, and raised more than $1,500 for the BC SPCA. This year, Kennedy Heights Animal Hospital joined in adding an extra 11 animals to the list – eight cats (six dental surgeries, two spay/neuters) and three dogs (all spay/neuters.) “The idea is that each of us every year will try to get another clinic involved,” said owner Dr. Linda Schild, who volunteered her time with three other veterinarians at her clinic (two from other offices) and a dozen other assistants and specialists. “We can’t begin to express how grateful we are to Dr. Claudia Richter, Dr. Linda Schild and their teams at Burnaby Veterinary Hospital and Kennedy Heights Animal Hospital for organizing Vets in Action day, and to everyone who is volunteering to help,” said BC SPCA Burnaby Branch manager Ryan Voutilainen. Voutilainen said the day’s surgeries at both clinics helped the BC SPCA save about $20,000 in surgical costs, which are about $1 million per year provincewide. “We rely entirely upon community support to carry out our services and programs, so this kind of event allows us to help even more animals.” Fundraising continues at www.gofundme. com/j0q42w For more information, visit www.facebook. com/vetsinaction

Evan Seal photo

Club president Ron Benderski takes a break with his 2007 Honda Goldwin near the Peace Arch.

Greater Vancouver Motorcycle Club roars into riding season

Get your motor running Evan Seal Black Press

As the days get longer, many motorcycle enthusiasts are beginning to ready their steeds for the upcoming riding season. That’s no different for members of the Greater Vancouver Motorcycle Club (GVMC), based in Surrey’s Port Kells. For club president Ron Benderski, tinkering with his 1200cc six-cylinder 1984 Kawasaki touring bike – one of his five bikes – is a labour of love and a way to keep busy. Pointing to the full instrument panel that looks more like the cockpit of a small plane, Benderski’s enthusiasm for motorcycles shines through as he describes how the bike, in its day, was state-of-the-art. “It has all the gauges, even a complete stereo with a cassette player,� he says. “It was a limited edition bike, too. It had absolutely everything.�

Currently, he’s using one Kawasaki as a parts bike to rebuild another back to life. “It gives me something to do in my spare time. I just wish I had spare time,� he says laughing. He currently rides a 2007 Honda Goldwing, but it was the Honda 50cc dirt bike that he bought in 1965 that helped kickstart the obsession. “My dad always told me that if you need to borrow money, you can’t afford it, so he wasn’t happy that he found out my uncle had co-signed a loan for me.� After retiring from the banking industry himself, Benderski and his wife Lillian, who only recently bought her own bike, have been able to fully enjoy the open road. Recently, he took on the role of president of the GVMC, a club originally started in the 1920s in Vancouver by longtime Vancouver motorcycle legend and

businessman Fred Deeley, who owned a motorcycle dealership in Vancouver. Over the years, the club has participated in numerous rides around North America – all with the goal of promoting motorcycle riding while building a strong sense of community among its membership. Currently, the club has 130 members, with about 40 being actively involved, riding everything from mopeds to full-sized road bikes. Since the early 1990s the club has raised nearly $200,000 for the BC Children’s Hospital and other charities, and annually hosts five major rides that are open to the public, along with on-road and off-road events. The Surrey club will be offering Thursday evening rides for beginners. For more info about the club and its activities, go to www. gvmc.ca

We’ve pondered and struggled with “If not now- When do we leave behind us “Home Again, Home Again?� It’s time to move on; we’ve heard the calls of our dream home in lovely Okanogan Falls. We’re happy, and sad too, that we’ve reached this stage and - joyfully - it’s not related to our age. Our retirement home is almost finished. (All this before our minds are fully diminished!) But before we go, it’s only fitting to say Fond farewell to those we’ve met along the way. It’s been almost sixteen years, so very satisfying; The business we love, so gratifying. Our clients, our friends, how do we begin to thank you for opening your homes and allowing us in... your homes to install our store’s decor, Pictures, special features, mirrors and much more. We like to think we’ve served you well, no matter your taste or favor, And that we’ve added some beauty to your home that you will love and savor. You’ve shared your likes, your lives, glasses of wine; Your warm hospitality has been nothing short of divine. Thank you our J~Team, Jennice, Judy and Jenny. We’re so grateful for you, and your talents - so many. What can we say to show we’re appreciative for your dedication, your loyalty and initiative. The store will be closing, and we will be leaving for a new life we still have a hard time believing. We have such mixed feelings; we shared such a long past. But we’re moving forward from �Home Again, Home Again� to “HOME AT LAST�!

F

or many, spring break destinations include sunny, tropical locales rife with sandy beaches and plenty of sun. And while a team of 11-year-old softball players are indeed heading south this March, it’s for reasons other than to simply work on their tans. The South Surrey-White Rock Thunder ‘03 girls fastpitch team is set for an 11-day trip to Ecuador, where they’ll visit six cities, play a handful of games against host teams, and also run softball camps, coaching clinics and donate equipment. Softball is not a traditional sport in Ecuador – like most South American

countries, soccer rules the athletic landscape – but it is growing quickly in popularity, explained Thunder head coach Tracey Cardinal-Mitchell. Ecuador has, for example, sent a recent under-18 national team to play in the Showcase Division at the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championships – held every July in South Surrey – and are planning to take part in the 2016 Women’s World Championships, which are also scheduled to take place here next summer. “At each stop we’ll play softball, but it’s also a cultural tour for our girls, and to show them that it’s important to give back, and help them grow (the sport) in Ecuador,” said Cardinal-Mitchell, who will be making

the spring-break journey with daughter, Miranda, and husband Dwayne Mitchell, both of whom are also coaches with the team. “I know they’re really trying to grow the sport there and they’re very enthusiastic when it comes to (promoting) equality for women in sports.” The Thunder have been organizing and fundraising for the trip for months, but the seeds of the adventure were planted much earlier. “It’s been an all-encompassing, daily event since August, but we’ve been talking about doing this trip for about two years,” Cardinal-Mitchell explained. “And the more we talk about it, the more

excited the girls get.” The trip sprung from, of all places, a softball-related Facebook group, where Cardinal-Mitchell began chatting with Paulina Salazar, who works with Ecuadorian sports organization Liga Del Sur. After chatting with Salazar, CardinalMitchell then met with members of Ecuador’s national program when the aforementioned U18 team was at Softball City during the Canadian Open. The planning snowballed from there to the point where a six-city, 14,783-km, 11-day whirlwind trip became reality. It is a costly endeavour, however. In i see page 24

Valley West sits fifth in league standings

Hawks split at showcase Rick Kupchuk Sports Reporter

Over the past two weekends, the Valley West Hawks have shown they are capable of keeping pace with the top hockey teams in the BC Hockey Major Midget League (MML). Last weekend at the MMLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showcase Weekend in Richmond, the fifth-place Hawks faced off against the leagueleading Cariboo Cougars and earned a split. Valley West won 3-2 Saturday afternoon, then lost a 2-1 decision Sunday morning to fall to 15-9-6 (won-lost-tied) with 10 games remaining. The Cougars are at 26-5-1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A pair of low scoring, onegoal games was hardly indicative of the end-to-end, intense play,â&#x20AC;? said Hawks head coach Jessie Leung. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It truly spoke to the parity at the top of standings where either team could have won either game with a bounce here or there.â&#x20AC;?

Valley West earned a loss and a win against the Vancouver Giants the previous weekend, giving the defending provincial champions a tough test in both games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we proved to ourselves over these last two weeks that we are as good as any team in our league,â&#x20AC;? added Leung. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could just as easily be 4-0-0 in our last four rather than 1-2-1.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks rallied in the third period for the win Saturday. Langleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s James Malm put Valley West up 1-0 13 minutes into the second period, but a pair of power-play goals had the Cougars up 2-1 after 40 minutes. The Hawks tied the game five minutes into the third period, with Daniel Watson of Semiahmoo netting his second goal of the season on the power-play. Malm netted the game-winning goal with 10 minutes to play, deflecting a point shot from White Rock defenceman Matt

Barberis past the Cougars netminder. For Barberis, it was his third assist of the game. All the scoring Sunday came in the second period. The Cougars struck for two goals in a three-minute span midway through the session, then Semiahmoo defender Ian Ross cut into the Cariboo lead with his fourth goal of the season six minutes before the second intermission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bad luck on a few plays and a very tough opponent kept us from another two points,â&#x20AC;? said Leung. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we play every game for the rest of the season like we did these two we will win far more than we lose.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks will play twice against the 12-14-4 Fraser Valley Thunderbirds next weekend, travelling to Abbotsford on Saturday then playing at home at 11 a.m. at the Langley Events Centre on Sunday morning.

I first saw this handsome style, Hyundai Intrado, which is a concept crossover designed which gives the impression that the vehicle is moving to foreshadow a change design direction for the Korean even when stationary, at the Mazda6 launch in Paris manufacturer. It looks a little bit like an oversized Juke, a few years ago.

Question of the Week

The concept features a hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain linked to a 36 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that Hyundai boasts will provide a range of 600 kilometres. By the way, British Columbians will soon be able to lease a Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, with a similar powertrain and a reported range of 425 kms. Subaru VIZIV2 The Subaru concept crossover utility hybrid shown is a four-door version of a previously revealed two-door. Get this: Subaru says its “athletic, rugged shape of the sides seem designed in the image of a muscular NHL defenceman, and the fenders flare in a sturdy style.” Ahem. Looks like it came out of the Nissan/Infiniti design studios, and that’s not a criticism. Toyota FT1 Toyota was all about the roar of the engines in Montreal, which certainly pleased the gathered Quebec auto journos, who to a man/woman always appear to be race crazy to me (Given the market reality in Quebec, that doesn’t appear to be reflected in car buyer choices). Nevertheless, most would surely enjoy the sleek lines of the Toyota FT-1, designed to be at home on the track and a heck of a ticket magnet on the highway. Up next is the Toronto Show, which takes the name The Canadian International Auto Show. Bite your lip, Morgan. The Calgary show follows, then the new-look, re-imagined Vancouver International Auto Show debuts March 24-29.

The Canadian auto season kicked off in Montreal and the Vancouver show starts March 24. Do you plan to visit the show? If so, are you looking to buy? Or just to see what’s new? Go to DrivewayCanada.ca for question of the week

Not your grandfather’s Lincoln Alexandra Straub

TAX-FREE SAVINGS ACCOUNT Faith is a concept not exclusive to religion. The principle of faith is to believe in things that haven’t been seen. Then there is the loss of faith. Perhaps the lack of seeing, and the abundance of waiting, left other opinions to be formed in the waiting period. Lincoln is a brand in which many lost faith. Its association with lacklustre quality, and the stigma that only individuals who are in the latter stages of life drive a Lincoln didn’t help its cause. In the last couple of years, the “Have faith in Lincoln” restoration campaign has been in full swing. With strong products, ones that appeal to both the eyes and enthusiast, they’re coming back strong. With the launch of its small, premium utility vehicle, the MKC, it’s certainly a huge stride in the right direction. It’s allnew for 2015 and starts at $39,940. The MKC is the first vehicle to be designed from the ground up in a dedicated Lincoln studio, and I think they’ve done a great job. From its classic and signature split-wing grille, to its tight lines, to its overall form, I’m impressed. As you slip inside its spacious and inviting interior, you’ll notice the absence of a large gear selector near the centre console. That’s because it’s integrated into the stack and you operate it via the push of a button. The centre stack has a streamlined-nature to it. The buttons and touch screen

The first is a 2.0L, EcoBoost 4-cylinder with 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Then there’s an optional 2.3L, EcoBoost 4-cylinder with a spirited 285 horsepower. The MKC, regardless of engine choice, comes with an all-wheel drive setup. Whether at speed or crawling along in the city, the electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) has been calibrated to give the drivers enough feedback that it doesn’t feel lazy. Estimated fuel consumption numbers come in at 12.9L/100km in the city and 9.2L/100km on the road. According to the trip computer, which I zeroed after picking the vehicle up, it said I was averaging 15.7L/100km. Yikes. I didn’t think I had that much of a lead foot, but I wasn’t driving the vehicle hard. And

my daily routines consist of both city and highway driving. This figure wasn’t as impressive as I had hoped for. Aside from not-so-amazing fuel results, I was quite happy with the MKC’s cargo capacity. With the rear seats up, you’re looking at 712L. With the rear seats folded, there’s 1,505L to work with. Then there are such features like the panoramic vista roof, the heated and cooled front seats, THX audio system, and active park assist to make the vehicle even sweeter. Despite the plethora of options – there were $14,230 worth, for a test price of $55,920 with the $1,750 delivery charge included – the MKC doesn’t need to be loaded with them to the max to make it a worthwhile vehicle to drive. It does have some tough competition, like the Audi Q5, Acura RDX, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLK, but it can hold its own and does a great job of ensuring a great driver’s experience.

Each home has Áoorplans that maximize every square foot of space, providing a feeling of clutter-free calm and plenty of room for entertaining guests. “Also, windows in some of the kitchens,” says Wang on some of the features that make Uptown stand out. “This is not typically found in highrise condos – enjoy the view while you cook.”

Once again, Bosa Properties has created a well-loved community by centralizing the building within a great urban village, with plenty of access to amenities by foot or transit. “The neighborhood around Uptown is emerging,” says Uptown2 Sales Manager, Alice Wang. “At Uptown’s base will be a large grocer - a Sobey’s or subsidiary of Sobey’s.

The sleek and spacious kitchens follow an L-shaped design, allowing for generous counter space. Contemporary wood-grain cabinets, imported marble backsplash, quartz counters, and soft-close doors compliment the modernized environment. With premium appliances and timeless interiors, no detail is too small to help ensure that Uptown2 owners feel a sense of ease and upscale living.

OBITUARIES

ROY, Henry Eugene

June 25 1927 - January 22 2015. We are very sad to announce the passing of our dad Henry.

WILLIAMS, John KEITH Burton July 1st, 1934 – December 29th, 2014

Henry was born and raised in Saint Georges de Beauce, Quebec. He was the second son of Gerard Roy & Cecile Gagnon. His father Gerard was an organists and manager of a movie theatre(s) that continued playing silent movies in the 1930s. So Henry remembers his dad letting him watch movies as he played the organ. Henry later worked at Saint-Georges Woollen Mills in Saint-Georges de Beauce. His mom’s dad, J.A. Gagnon, was one of the earliest photographers in St Georges. Henry took over the photography business working along side his mom’s sister in the same home built by Gagnon. Henry took his high school in Chicago. And later made a career change by graduating from Palmer College School Chiropractic Fountain Head in Davenport, Iowa. He practiced in Toronto and then in his mom’s parents’ home in Saint Georges de Beauce, Quebec.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Keith. Born in Skewen, South Wales, GB. Keith graduated from the University of Swansea with a BSc. (hons) degree in Physics and supporting BSc. Degrees in Pure and Applied Mathematics. The earlier part of his career he spent as a Research Physicist with electronic, aircraft and textile companies, followed by technical and managerial responsibilities in research and production of electrical cable manufacturing for Awco Ltd., a major British cable company. In 1976 he and his family immigrated to Canada, settling in White Rock, B.C. In 1977 he joined BC Hydro in their High Voltage Distribution Engineering Division. In 1988 Keith transferred to Fundamental Research on High Voltage Transformer Design at B.C. Hydro Research Division in Surrey until his retirement in 1997. During his retirement Keith ran a Tutorial Service for students in mathematics, physics and chemistry in White Rock and surrounding areas. Keith was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who loved Welsh rugby and soccer, traveling with his wife and family, old movies and socializing each morning with his coffee club buddies. He loved and inspired us all and will be tremendously missed by his loving wife Pamela, sons Garrick (Daisy), Rhys (Jennifer), Alex (Renee), Davyd (Michelle), daughter Pamela (Dennis) and many family and friends. This verse from “A Psalm of Life” was written by Longfellow with Keith in mind. Lives of great men all remind us. We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us, Footprints on the sands of time.

In 1964 he married Ginette Grenier and later began his family in that same house. As Ginette had a physical disability, Henry took extra care of her during their 38 years of marriage. He had an elevator installed in his home to make it easier for his wife. In the late 1970s, Henry moved his family out west to escape snow which he disliked. Settling in Vancouver’s Kitsilano, Henry continued to work hard at making life easier for his wife and to raise his two sons, Tony and Sydny. After his wife’s passing, Henry settled in White Rock. Beginning in 2008 Henry began being attacked by cancer and complications from cancer. He fought a courageous battle and suffered greatly at times. He passed away on the sixth floor of Peace Arch Hospital. Henry has left behind and will be missed by his son Tony who took care of him during his health troubles. He’ll be also missed by Sydny and his wife Maureen and their daughter Chance in Courtenay, B.C. And several friends in Vancouver and White Rock and other relatives in Toronto and province of Quebec including his brother Yvon in Saint Georges de Beauce, and nieces, nephews, etc. He will be missed by Yvon Poulin and his wife Monique whom he reunited with in 2014 which he hadn’t seen in more than forty years. Henry is predeceased by both his parents, his 5 & 1/2 year old brother in 1929, his wife Ginette on June 9 2002, and a few other relatives in Quebec. We are sad he’s gone from us, but happy cancer stopped attacking him. We entrust him into the hands of the perfect God, who will judge all motives and intentions of the heart perfectly, rightly and mercifully. “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13).
